Carried by the stream

Creative forces behind the L-gesture

In the exercise “Swimming with the stream” the circular current that carries one forward from below and back from above comes close to the gesture that expresses the sound L in eurythmy.

When the arms have come forward with the lower stream and there is a sense of release, then the arms and hands rise up in front of the body in a narrow gesture. Carried down behind by the stream of the upper system, they become wide, letting go on the outside and taking hold of the lower stream again down below.

It’s like sitting in a river, dipping the hand into the water, feeling the current and being carried along by it -- a swimming along with and joining with the natural stream of the life forces.

B07_der_untere_Mensch_-_ein_Energieb_ndel_Thumbnail.jpgA course of seven videos on the upper and lower system in the human being and their effects on our body, our movement, and our self-consciousness.

Before beginning any course, please review the guidelines on the page How to use this site.

The course is public and currently free of charge.

In the handout you will find transcripts of the video segments. In addition, the handout contains the chapters

  • I am two
  • Spirit and body - two sides of the same coin
  • Consciously moving the ether

These basics are so important that we make them available for free.

You can simply look at the first five modules. We show you that you don't really have to do much to allow your body to pull you forwards or bring you back. You also see the application of this in eurythmy and gain an understanding how the sound gestures relate to the human being's inner forces and how they function.

In the last modules we go two steps further. We show how the astral body can play with the upper and lower system in the video "Curving around the room." Elementary functions of the I are shown in the video "Being in front - being behind." To gain access to these modules we ask you to buy the course for 0 Euro or a voluntary amount.
